Holly Golightly and husband Jim Balent.

Golightly's list of work ranges from Nightmare Theatre[3] for Chaos! Comics to Sabrina[4] for Archie Comics to her creator-owned work such as Vampfire and School Bites.[5]

She is the colorist for husband Jim Balent's Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose[6] as well as the model for Tarot herself.[7] She has frequently been shown on the photo covers dressed as Tarot and as Catress from the 3 Little Kittens comics and is the model for the official Tarot photo calendar.

She has expanded into pin-ups/modeling with Balent doing the photography and has her own pin-up calendar. She designed and maintains both of their official websites, and designs many of the T-shirts and apparel that the site offers.

Golightly also contributes art for various businesses and people including NewWitch magazine[2] and Thomas Dolby.[4]

Golightly and Balent operate the BroadSword Comics comics publishing company, known for its Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose comic book. Under this company, Golightly has published Fears and Ears: A Travel Guide to Orlando as well as numerous art books of her own work.
